• Darrell Issa Investigates: Zombie ACORN on the Loose!

    Yaaawwwn. Just another sunny day in America, where we no longer have to fear the evil Marx-monster ACORN and its vote-stealing, Census-helping, pimp-enabling habits because OH MY GOD what is lurking in the shadows that just fell across our sunny, democratic day?

    [A] report from California Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, includes details of a recent business transaction between ACORN and a California affiliate that broke away this year and changed its name in a bid to start anew.

    "ACORN is attempting to rebrand itself without instituting real reforms or removing senior leadership figures that need to be held accountable for wrongdoing," Issa said in a press release. "These newly renamed organizations are like career criminals who adopt aliases without changing their criminal lifestyles."

    The document, titled "Asset Transfer and License agreement" shows that Bertha Lewis, chief executive of ACORN, sold the group's assets to the newly formed Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) in exchange for cash.

    ACCE has hired former ACORN employees, purchased the ACORN database of dues-paying members and bought a database with "e-mail contact information for approximately 16,202 potential contributors residing in California.

    Well, at least he's consistent. Darrell Issa has always had strong feelings about shady organizations who adopt new names without changing their criminal ways.
